m3u8 not working - works in Simple PVR Client

Post by Abbaskip » Tue Sep 11, 2018 12:55 am

I'm a Kodi user primarily, and have a new (free) m3u8 link that works 100% in Simple PVR Client, but it's not working in TV Mosaic.

The m3u8 is http://iptv.matthuisman.nz/au/Sydney/kodi.m3u8

Is there a reason why this isn't working in TV Mosaic? Is this functionality that can be added? I'd really like to have this so that I can record my channels etc and the other benefits of TV Mosaic with this playlist. I really don't want to have to add just one playlist to Kodi through Simple PVR with the rest of mine through Mosaic.

Does this link work at the VLC player?

I'll try to remember to check tomorrow.

However it works in IPTV Simple Client in Kodi and also works in Android in IPTV Extreme Pro - though I have to Play With (and use MX or VLC etc) rather than Play within the native IPTV Extreme player. Assume that's a codec issue.

The author suggested I use http://iptv.matthuisman.nz/au/Sydney/raw.m3u8

Instead and it now works.

Apparently some additional headers or similar in the Kodi one. Strange that it stops it from working in mosaic though?

Indeed, the links contain custom headers and they are not supported by TVMosaic at the moment. The item is on todo list.
